Earlier this month Raekwon‘s legendary solo debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx hit its big 2-o, marking two decades of the rugged and rawness that is the mythical “Purple Tape.” And to celebrate, The Chef has cooked up a very special, extremely limited edition capsule collection with the good folks at Packer Shoes, capturing the deep purple glow of the record in incredibly lavish decor, perhaps the only way to celebrate such a seismic release.
The collection is comprised of a properly purple and velvety Diadora N. 9000 colorway, an exclusive New Era cap, Diadora track jacket, tee and for the first ninety-five people in line for the collection’s unveiling at SOB’s today, a ticket to his 20th anniversary show at the legendary NYC venue tonight. Doors for the unveiling of the collection open at 11am, which is right about now. So run, don’t walk, down to 204 Varick St. and bear witness to the massive celebration of one of hip-hop most cherished records. Flip through the gallery above to see what’s in store for you and bump ” Ice Cream” the whole way through. Grab a copy of Raekwon’s classic on iTunes today or cop the vinyl via GetOnDown today.
